Our central goals are to address Youth Sexual & Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) - ensuring that young people are engaging in safe sexual and reproductive practices that lead to healthy lives – including addressing teenage pregnancy, Gender-based Violence, accessing sexual health youth-friendly SRHR services (including contraception and family planning services); Livelihoods and Wealth Creation – ensuring that young people have the capacity to become income earners in their communities whether through employment opportunities or by business creation and entrepreneurship; and Civic Participation – ensuring that young people are at the centre of decision-making processes and policies – at a local, regional and nation level.
International Citizen Service (ICS) is a UK government-funded development programme that brings together 18 to 25-year-olds from all backgrounds to fight poverty in both Global South and UK communities. ICS represents a significant investment by the UK government in young people. DFID has chosen to fund ICS because it believes in the power of young people to bring about positive change in some of the poorest communities around the world, and that by creating 14,000 active citizens we can shape the future for the better.
We are looking for a dynamic, committed, experienced and passionate staff to coordinate and oversee delivery and support of our ICS volunteer-led programmes in the Eastern Cape. Working with rural-based communities and youth volunteers from both South Africa and the UK throughout the regions, our programmes build the capacity of communities to respond to the challenges facing young people around our three core strategic objective areas of sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR), livelihoods and employment, and civic participation.
